searching the skpr net he found an fbi poster for a similar man. that man was john donald cody a harvard educated attorney who had mysteriously disappeared from his arizona law practice in 1984. and was later indicted on four counts of a state fraud. the original wanted poster described a man without tear ducts so eliot called thunderstorm watchson's land lady that her tenant left something unusual, two big bottles of eye drops. >> it said he had no tear duct, he had to use eye drops all the time. in our world one and one equals two. >> reporter: also left behind in that apartment one dvd. >> been a while since i've done this. >> reporter: leonardo dicaprio's portrayal of a fugitive on the run in "catch me if you can." it wasn't until the fbi searched the military's own fingerprint files going back to 1969, the year cody last served that a positive match was finally made. >> we love doing this. we love catching the people that don't think they can be caught. even more than that we love identifying the people that they can't be identified. >> reporter: in another twist of event the fbi ha
absolutely does not have the evidence to assert that link right now. remember, the fbi has to make the determination. they're still not in benghazi. the state department will say, though, that al qaeda called aqim very active in the region and they're up in arms coming from mali into libya and this is one of the countries where you have a new government that isn't fully in control of the area. >> they don't have the evidence and waiting for the fbi to investigate and do they have anything that suggests there might be a link? >> they don't say that they have evidence either way. what they do know and will talk about is that one of the extremist groups in the area who is believed to be behind this, but they still do not have the evidence to assert that at this point may have some relationship with al qaeda. they just can't say either way. the fbi has to go and do this investigation and they have the accountability review board that hasn't begun its investigation yet and we might get the results going into congress until the spring. >> good to see you. >>> with us, arizona senator joh
's going on? why can't the fbi get in there and do what they were sent there to do? >> the security situation on the ground there is so brittle that the libyan government is very reluctant to have a team of a couple of dozen fbi people go into benghazi when the only people they could get to protect them are the militias. right now they don't trust any of the militias. the key militia that's in charge of protecting the hospital where the wounded were taken from this attack is suspected to be behind the attack. that crime scene's long ago compromised, trampled through, looted. it may or may not yield anything terribly important. if it does, it will yield it later. it's a difficult situation. >> is there any more information on this question of how much this may have been a pre-planned attack? >> there is, and i think you've kind of put your thumb on the pulse of the problem there because in these groups we look for -- we want a wearing diagram. we want an organized picture. it was al qaeda who ordered it. it was this group that assisted. the problem is the lines are blurred between th
about the search for retired fbi agent robert levinson. he vanished in iran more than five years ago. when we interviewed iran's president he seemed to admit that they're holding levinson and there are on going negotiations for a prisoner swap. on tuesday levinson's wife christine spoke with senior correspondent john miller. >> were you surprised when you heard his comments? in the past he's asked and said much less. >> i was quite surprised but i was also happy to hear it. that means we can actually hopefully resolve bob's case. >> you consider these comments a step forward? >> yes, i do. i do. i hope the iranian government and president ahmadinejad will continue to work to return bob to his family. >> that's a really interesting story. when we talked to him about that, there's indication that he is there, this acknowledgment there's been some discussion of a swap and we'll see if there's some movement on this case. a family is missing their father and grandfather for more than five years. >> one aspect of the story we didn't report which is after yards iranians said no, no, he's in
assistant director of the fbi and former los angeles police department deputy commissioner is here with us this morning. good morning. >> good morning. >> hundreds of cases, thousands of cases. the fallout from this has got to be huge in massachusetts. >> i think it's bigger even than they are projected. you have to remember the type of offenses she is being accused of. let's talk about the cases where she's the primary chemist and testified, we're talking about 1,100 cases. that's a lot to go through. the cases where she was somewhere involved in the process of the chain of custody of the evidence and the testings, now we're talking 61,000 drug cases involving 31,000 defendants. you have a situation where the governor has ordered his chief judge to set up special courts that may be working literally over time into the night to start to process the claims by defendants that they were involved. can we just take this one step further? one of the allegations is not only that she fake the testing, but that in things that came back testing negative for drugs, she would sprinkle drugs in from re
